"The compilation Music For Children is a project by friends with it's own story. The idea was by Chica Paula of the label Ruta5: 'I love to listen to music with my daughter Romina, but we didn't feel like listening to this old styled productions for children. Romina loves electronic music very much -- so why don't we make modern music for our children? After years of intense club- and party culture, most of the involved artists have now own children, or they are familiar with the needs through the children of their friends. The compilation tries to combine these two quite opposite ways of living. The tracks use sounds from little music boxes, melodies of children's songs or the voice of a baby. So they create a sound of intimate elation and harmony, they switch between minimal electronica and naive melody. The customs of listening have changed by children too. Musicians like Debussy or Satie worked intensely on music for children -- maybe to explore their own fantasy or to satisfy their urge to play and the child in their own.' A lot of the artists have Chilean origins, are related with people from Chile or have been there for vacation. Most of them live now in Berlin and support the label Ruta5, which sets up a stage for South American artists in Europe. After two years and a long way round the project came finally to Bruchstuecke, a label that released so far more club-oriented music for the dancefloor. Music For Children was the impulse to start a more textual and home-listening oriented series on the CD."
